    I'm very interested in this. The reviews for the 558M1RY were great, and with HDMI 2.1 and 144Hz, this could be a solid buy. Obviously it's competing with OLED displays, but that's a decision to make later.

    Re: Philips Momentum 559M1RYV 55-inch gaming monitor incoming

    I use a TV as my monitor so this is something I'd want. You can't use OLED for desktop, otherwise that'd be the goto.

    TVs are fantastic for monitors if you're a casual user (browsing and games, no production), I currently use a 43" Sony HDR TV, and while the colour replication and all that jazz ain't as good as a monitor, you don't have a second one next to it showing that. But with this Philips it actually has monitor level reproduction and specs suited to one, so ya I'm excited.

    Probably gonna be a while before I can afford one tho..want a 3080 first and can't even afford that atm. Not like there's any about.

    Yeah, priorities. No point going for 4k144Hz if you don't have the GPU yet to use it. Might be a while for those unless you can grab a founders edition.

    It has Freesync, so the 144Hz should mean it can do low framerate compensation. It isn't obvious, but the high framerate capability actually helps with an under performing graphics card vs some fixed 60Hz TV where you have to nail over 60fps or suffer nasty laggyness.

    True. Was more thinking no point buying it first and getting frustrated about not being able to use it properly. Should be easier to grab one later, while 3080s are gonna be limited stock for a while.

    Could always plug a PS5 into it. There are supposed to be 15000 of them about to hit the market?

    Great if you're a console player... Can't imagine sticking one of these on my desk though
